Lassi Recipe, Punjabi Sweet Lassi Recipe, How to make cardamom lassi

Sweet Lassi Recipe
Sweet Lassi is one of the drinks I relish not only in summer but always. It is so much satisfying to end a mild lunch with a tall mug of lassi that is cardamom flavoured.I love the plain version that is served in local lassi shops than the punjabi version which is more of rose flavour. There are even salty versions of lassi too but I prefer the sweet version more.

Lassi is very heavy and thick which is served in shops, I made it on the lighter side by adding water and reducing malai. You can check the kesar lassi which I posted last year.

My Notes:

  • You can also add a pinch of saffron for extra flavour.
  • Actually you can top up more cream by pouring the lassi and then adding cream alternatively till you reach the rim of the glass.
  • You can use slightly use sour curd which works best.
  • No need to whisk the malai to a creamy texture as you need to feel the malai texture in your mouth while drinking.
